Welcome to Paul’s Podcast Diary for Saturday 18th May, 2019.

Coming up this week:

  • The end is in sight – I’m on target to finish my first draft of Left for Dead next week …
  • I’ve just landed three big fish for a podcast interview
  • What me and Captain James Cook have in common – it appears I’ve been publishing books for longer than anyone thought!

This diary charts my self-publishing journey – the ups the downs, the successes and the failures.

Everything goes into this diary, week-by-week, but you’ll also find it a source of great tips, resources, tools, podcast recommendations and so on.

If you’re new to the podcast and want to easily access the back catalogue of podcast diaries, in chronological order, please check out this page.

If I ever miss something out, or you’d like more information, just drop me an email at paul@paulteague.com.

    Paul, “Take Off Your Pants” is a great resource, as is “Anatomy of Story.” However, if you come across John Truby pitching a webinar or a course, stay far away. I speak from experience!
